Upcoming Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) Public Comment Opportunities.

Stay tuned for upcoming hearings. Meanwhile you can email the AQCC with feedback at cdphe.aqcccomments@state.co.us. Here is 350 Public Comment on proposed rule revisions. Talking points for this rule are: 1. They are requiring the Social Cost of Carbon to be used but they do not specify at what amount. They are using an outdated discount rate of 8%. They should specify the same amount for Social Cost of Carbon and discount rate that the Colorado Legislature passed into law this year. 2. They should require third party audits of emissions reports by manufacturers, not rely on self-reporting.
